Midland Fire Department Response Policy

The classifications below cover the types of incidents to which the Midland Fire Department (MFD) frequently responds. The number of units responding and whether the response is an emergency or not is determined by the incident type.

If the MFD responds to a call and no one is home, a form will be left indicating when the response was made, why, a brief description of the problem and what was done to resolve it, if any action was necessary.
